Words. Words need voices, or they’re just stupid, noiseless blobs. For example: what if I were to tell you that you’re now reading these words in the voice of Futurama’s Professor Farnsworth? Oh my, yes indeed. Bioware have just released a small teaser trailer showing you who is making their blobs into voices for Mass Effect 3. Now I know it’s the third game in a trilogy, so you’ll probably know who is making word things less blobby, but when I get the chance to link to President Bartlet Sheen, I take it. Join me below in a frankly embarrassing amount of hero worship.
Oh, Bartlet. Look at the twinkle in his eyes! You know he’s a Nobel Prize winning economist? I’d eat his chilli, even if Joshua Lyman thinks it needs more cumin. I’m a bit miffed that the trailer gives away the fact that he records his dialogue, as until now I’ve been pretending he was sat by my side, reading it out, softly whispering into my ear, his overly-spiced chili-breath warming my neck… Anyway, there are some other actors in there: Tricia Helfer, Keith David, Seth Green… but I tuned out when I couldn’t see Sheen.
